Spanish persimmons have a firm yellowy orange coloured skin and sweet orange flesh, similar to a mango. Persimmons make a great snack for children as they’re seedless and stone free.

Persimmons make a deliciously different crumble! The flavour of persimmons reminds me of honey, so I added a little honey to the crumble. Use the firm persimmons for this recipe, not the ones that need weeks to ripen.

This is such an easy pud to make, but looks unbelievably impressive. That, combined with the fact that you can easily make everything ahead of time and assemble at the last minute, makes it the perfect dinner party dessert. Did I mention that it's healthy, too?

A moist and fruity cake which makes perfect use of extremely ripe persimmons. Ensure your persimmons are so ripe that they're almost like jelly. Simply halve the persimmons and scoop the pulp out with a spoon.
